Internship, Job Openings @ Boston Children's Hospital Female Athlete Program (Boston, MA)

March 25, 2022

Hello, Princeton Health Professions Advising.

My name is Rory Kelly and I am a clinical research assistant with the Female Athlete Program, a Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance Innovation Hub at Boston Children’s Hospital

We are currently hiring for a summer intern, a full-time clinical research assistant, and a sports psychology clinician and hope you could share our openings with health professions students and your alumni network who may be interested in applying.

The Female Athlete Program cares for and champions girls and women in sport with interdisciplinary clinical care and cutting-edge research. Our definition of “female” non-exhaustively includes transgender females as well as those assigned female at birth, irrespective of their current gender identify or expression. We support the increased participation, retention, wellbeing, and performance of all female athletes, including LGBTA+, black, indigenous, people of color (BIPOC), and para-athletes. We are a part of the Division of Sports Medicine at BCH, are an Innovation Hub for the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance, and lead the bi-annual international Female Athlete Conference. We are for athletes of all ages and experience, from professionals to novices, to help them attain health at the top of their game. We take a comprehensive approach to diagnosing, treating, and managing sports injury and recovery in female athletes. We assess and support the whole athlete – exercise habits, hormone balance, nutritional needs – to ensure optimal health and peak performance. Our multidisciplinary team consists of experts in sports medicine who understand the importance of sports in an athlete’s life. Many of us played competitive sports in high school, college and beyond, and competed at national and international levels. We respect the strength and determination of female athletes and work with our patients to help them reach their athletic and human potential.

If you or any health profession students or alumni have questions about the positions, please reach out to Margo Cramer, MBA, Female Athlete Program Manager (marguerite.cramer@childrens.harvard.edu).

Application deadline (for the summer internship): April 8
